World order - a journey of construction and disruption

This artwork is inspired by the Tibetan art dul-tson-kyil-khor (mandala of colored powders).

It’s called World order - a journey of construction and disruption, as I think our generation is heading to the same journey, like many previously generations. Remind you the Sisyphus, or The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch?

Rather than words, brushes and sands, this work is constructed by pixels. It’s a so-called digital ear, right? From blurry to vivid, every pixel seems to have its meaning, function and purpose. After a while, you can tell the spinning order is generated, enhanced and refined. But soon, order collapses. It vanishes inevitably. That is the end of the order. In dul-tson-kyil-khor, monks wipe out the beautiful sands constructed by themselves and through that into the river. In my digital edition, I use numbers to achieve similar metaphor, Reincarnation, if you would like to put it that way.

The spinning wheels are constructed by pixels with this sequence: lines of 4, 14, 24, 34, 44, 54, 64, 74, 84, 94, 4. The 4 is a homophone of ‘generation’(世) in some cultures. A 19x19 board is used as background. 19x19 is used in Go games to generate trillion of options.
